Join us for free screenings of films from the IFI Irish Film Archive.

November’s programme complements the IFI and Experimental Film Club programme which attempts to trace an Irish experimental tradition.

PROGRAMME 1: By Accident (+ Screening in the Rain)

This early avant-garde work, much admired by Jack B. Yeats who attended several screenings in the Peacock Theatre in 1930, is an elliptical tale of a young man’s sombre reflections on his life filmed from the top of Nelson’s Pillar.

DIRECTOR: J.N.G. Davidson

FILM INFO: 20 minutes, 1930, Black and White

PROGRAMME 2: Self Portrait with Red Car

Bob Quinn’s clever little film is about the degree to which sound controls our perception of reality. Artist Brian Bourke is the human being in the film. His performance is brilliant, and very funny.


FILM INFO: 20 minutes, 1977, Colour
